Rolling Stone interview

Interview

Frances Bean Cobain Rolling StoneCobain talks to Rolling Stone about her father:

I was around 15 when I realized he was inescapable. Even if I was in a car and had the radio on, there’s my dad. He’s larger than life. and our culture is obsessed with dead musicians. We love to put them on a pedestal. And guess what? “I don’t really like Nirvana that much. Sorry, promotional people, Universal. I’m more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre [laughs]. The grunge scene is not what I’m interested in. But “Territorial Pissings” [on Nevermind] is a (expletive) great song. And “Dumb” [on In Utero] – I cry every time I hear that song. It’s a stripped-down version of Kurt’s perception of himself – of himself on drugs, off drugs, feeling inadequate to be titled the voice of a generation.

Kurt got to the point where he eventually had to sacrifice every bit of who he was to his art, because the world demanded it of him. I think that was one of the main triggers as to why he felt he didn’t want to be here and everyone would be happier without him.” But “in reality, if he had lived I would have had a dad. And that would have been an incredible experience.

Love and Nirvana lawsuit

Courtney Love and surviving members of Nirvana battle for the rights to the Nirvana legacy. The complaint by Love and Frances Cobain depicts Nirvana as a one-man show, reducing Novoselic and Grohl to little more than sidemen. Love also insists that Cobain decided to break up Nirvana several months before his death. Grohl and Novoselic’s legal papers refer to Love as:

a complete alien to Nirvana’s music and success [who is trying to] prohibit the remaining members of Nirvana from any commercial exploitation of the music they created.

Both Novoselic and Grohl have refrained from granting interviews on the subject of Kurt’s life out of respect for Cobain and his family, whereas Love

offered up many interviews on the subject of Kurt’s life and death which contain glaring inaccuracies
